EDWARD BURTYNSKY - WATER
A visit to the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in Chelsea for the opening of the new Edward Burtynsky exhibition called WATER.
The dramatic large-scale photographs from 2007 – 2013 document the scale and impact of harnessing and consuming the world’s water supplies in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe, Iceland, Asia, and India. Burtynsky chronicles the various roles that water plays in modern life: as a source of healthy ecosystems and energy, as a key element in cultural and religious rituals, and as a rapidly depleting resource.
The exhibition coincide with the publication of a new book, Burtynsky – Water, to be published by Steidl in September 2013, and the release of a feature-length documentary film, Watermark.
